COVID-19 LVCIL Status Update

Update April 23, 2020

Dear LVCIL Consumers and Friends,

While our office is still closed to the public under Gov. Wolf’s stay at home order, we continue to be here for you during this difficult time to provide essential services.

As of April 23, our Sign Language Interpreter Referral Service and Financial staff are working from the building at 713 North 13th St. in Allentown. Our Transition and Employment coaches continue supporting consumers in the field, though new referrals have been put on hold. Waiver participants may reach out to their supports coordinator and consumers looking for Core/Housing needs can contact their community supports coordinator, who are working remotely. Furthermore, information and referral services are still available.

While our building is not open to the public, our Peer Support Group is meeting virtually three times a week. Adaptations, S2L and Community Club have also continued meeting virtually.

Please feel free to reach out to our staff, as they are still available via email and/or phone. Stay tuned for updates and check out our social media for more information.

Sincerely,

Amy C. Beck
Executive Director
